    hello, I am new to this forum.
    A bit about myself - I am from Latvia and I am Land Rover driver and parts dealer.
    Unfortunately I can say I am also victim of freelanderirdspecialists. Off course I can blame myself that I was too lazy and too busy to collect information about company prior ordering something. Amount of money was not too big so I do not worried. At the beginning of the October I transferred +-200 GBP and then all communication stopped. I transferred money to Dan Ball private bank account. Dan position - he do not received money, I talked to bank they said he did.
    I would like to say at the beginning response to my e-mail was very fast, +-10minits, "specialist" was very kind and interested. Exact opposite was happened when money was on his account. So I suppose Dan is sitting on e-mail and waiting for dummies and all bla bla about hard times is absolute b.... there are no any irdspecialist I think there are only cowboys whose activities are planned!

    Working with Land Rovers, I am dealing with many UK companies and my previous experience was very good. I would like to say I do not know any other vehicle marque where are such strong global community and so good relationship between people. Unfortunately there are ever first time...

    My company is part of one of the biggest global LR parts channel so I do my best everyone knows about this company

    Sorry for bad English
    best regards
    Maris

    p.s. if any of LR drivers are interested to off-road in Latvia please fell free to contact me, you will be surprised how much freedom we have driving all arround [​IMG]

    A friendly employee at Barclays would help, found his mate Ben Noon in Muswell hill a month ago and believe your mate Dan Ball has connection with Milton Keynes

    We had trouble with this bloke last year, ordered IRD, paid for it, never arrived. Chased and call and got no response whatsoever. He must be making a fortune ripping of so many innocent people.

    I came across a strange link today to a LR parts co.

    The ad was for "Land Rover Spares North East" and linked to their website....

    LAND ROVER SPARES NORTH EAST

    However, embeded in the advert was another link to....

    http://www.freelanderspares.com/

    This second link failed, server not found. But it rang bells, so I've tried to dig through the rip-off VCU supplier info on here.

    FreelanderIrdSpecialists were rips off merchants at around 2010 - but do look to have closed up shop. Their product quality wasn't the problem - it was not getting product after paying for it.

    Then came reports about FreelanderSpares VCUs in 2012. These people did supply product but by the looks of it, they were rubbish...

    http://www.landyzone.co.uk/lz/f9/warning-freelander-spares-vcus-190850.html

    http://www.landyzone.co.uk/lz/f9/vcu-problem-240241.html

    True to being "found out", the FreelanderSpares website is down, but the same people are now trading as "Land Rover Spares North East". It is the same "SUNTER & MORRIS MOTORS" according to to their website registration ad email addresses on thier website. Website says they've been trading since 1983, web domain was registered May 2014.

    I think tread with caution is advised.

    Just so people are not confused FreelanderSpecialists are a bonafide Freelander parts & service co.

    for an earlier model,to be fair i phoned them up &
    the response was send it back for full refund + postage

    Never ever pay any such items/services without paypal. Regardless of the cost if they claim "oh paypal fees" offer to pay the fees yourself then. Just a general advise on anything to be fair.
